1st Goostrey Scouts is appealing for donations from local residents and businesses towards the £200,000 costs of building the new Scout hut and Youth Centre opposite the Crown Inn in Goostrey.

Anyone wishing to contribute is invited to contact: david.giles@shell.com

Group Scout Leader David Giles said: “The Executive of 1st Goostrey Scouts has established a new Fundraising Sub-Committee to ensure that we will have sufficient funds to get the Scout hut built.  This follows the grant of planning permission in October and the decision in principle by Goostrey Parish Council in December to transfer half of the Main Road site to the Scouts.

Residents are also invited to support fundraising events being run by Goostrey Scouts.

Forthcoming events include:

  • An Open Mic Session at The Crown Inn on Wed 4 February
  • A Family Quiz Night on Sunday 8 February at 7pm at Goostrey Village Hall 
  • A  sponsored hike will be taking place on 14/15 March by members of the Scout section
  • A Car Boot Sale is also being planned for March and another car wash in April

The Scout Fundraising Sub-Committee would also welcome any new suggestions for raising funds – please contact: david.giles@shell.com
